"View > Languages and Web Content" does not work for me!

This is in build 2001-05-03-09 as well as in 0.9 (! this makes L10n XPIs almost
unuseable!), I'll try a newer one as soon as I have it installed.

I tried both in Linux, I'll try 0.9 on Win98 soon.

If I click any entry in that menu, the browser simply doesn't react. No box
telling me I need a restart, as we had before. After a restart, the "new"
language is not applied. I assume clicking the entry doesn't trigger the actual

oops, seems this would actually have been a dupe of 76006...

But as this one has keywords, a target milestone and is assigned, I'll do it the
other way round and dupe 76006 (no keywords, status = NEW, no target milestone,
only a few CCs) to this one.

BTW, I'm also seeing this on Win98, so I assume OS=All
OS: Linux → All

Is this _proposed_ language and content pack specification posted at
www.mozilla.org?  I'll say it again:  UI changes go through a public review
process.  If there are standing objections from mpt (owner of the UI Design
Component) or other UI design contributors then those concerns must be addressed
before the proposal becomes a specification.  An implementation will not be
checked in until the design issue is settled.

r=nhotta for both patches

as alecf pointed out, this is not really related to bug 65241, bug 65251 or bug 
65253. This is a regression and only addresses broken functionality.

Still have a problem for Region (ContentLocale), I could
set "ja-JP" but could not set "JP" region from profileManager.

I've filed this as bug 84443 against ChromeRegistry. Please evaluate.

any news on this? I have trouble reproducing the problem Katakai is pointing 
out. I also believe that he is going to address any remaining issues in his 
code rework for bug 80230. Any reason to keep this open for 0.9.2? KaiRo, can 
we close this?

Comment 32

Juraj - I'm also having trouble reproducing this one.

Katakai - Could you please provide a test case for this? 
I'll attempt to reach Katakai on 06/14/2001 by phone to solicit more input.
marking dependency on bug 80230. Unless we get additional information from 
Katakai, this bug will be closed on 06/15/2001. I'll try to call him again.

Katakai? Are you reading this?
Depends on: 80230
I'm closing this. The original problem has been resolved and the Profile 
Manager glitch reported by Katakai is non-reproducable as of 06/16/2001.

Please file a new bug against the Profile Manager if needed, and have a look at 
Katakai's rework of the underlying backend in bug 80230.

Waiting on new content and lang packs to verify this.  See bug 89531 and bug
90279 for more info.  This has basically been verified on WinMe-Ja using a tweak
to the packs that "updates" them; using that tweak, I was able to switch
language and region on the 07-10-branch build.  On Linux and Mac, Profile
Manager does not display correctly (only "Manage Profiles" button appears, and
old profiles do not appear in the window) if I download and apply an old
lang/region pack.  Investigating whether this is due to incompatibility with the
outdated pack as a result of the fix to bug 86807.

Verified on WinMe-Ja using US Win 07-18-05-branch build and ja-JP pack from JA
Win 07-17-05-branch build.  Cannot change language using same pack in
07-18-06-trunk build.  Tao, is that because the version of the trunk is different?

Filed Bugscape 7607 for problem with how ja-JP pack appears in View menu after
